Re: Do Black Ice Prevent Firewall and Protector Regeneration?

I forgot to write about another downside: If there's a shot in transit when a Black Ice is captured, that damage may be irrelevant if capturing the Black Ice lets a hacker progress further up the network. Which is to say, a hacker may not care if the previous node was captured, because NOW they have...

Re: Do Black Ice Prevent Firewall and Protector Regeneration?

Black Ice doesn't really have all that much more firewall than Turrets. It stays at about 16% more firewall from level 1 to level 21. Noticeable, but not amazing. Black Ice does have higher DPS, up to 75% at level 21, but the DPS stat is misleading. Turrets are consistently good. They start doing da...

Do Black Ice Prevent Firewall and Protector Regeneration?

If not, that would be a nice little buff for this otherwise mediocre node. 'Course it would still need more buffs even after that.

You're embarrassing me. There are plenty of people whom I hold in higher regard than myself. They just don't post on the forums any more.

Re: I overleveled with farms and mines, HALP

If I was to hack your network, I'd go through the turrets. 9 program slots makes this easy, and the attack priorities are convenient for this approach. Plus when I reach the guardian choke, I can use one Ram to break 2 Code Gates, which is great since Rams take 10 minutes to compile. When I say 'my'...

Re: I overleveled with farms and mines, HALP

Your first two gates can be Wraithed with level 1 stealth, completely negating all the money you put into upgrading them. Or your first gate and your Sentry can be Wraithed with level 4 stealth. You're not being hit by stealth because stealth is expensive, takes a long time to compile, and people do...

Re: What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

Antivirus pulses are sent every 1 second, so the DPS statistic is damage per second and also damage per pulse. Pulses are additive. 3 nodes sending AV to the same neighbor will capture the neighbor 3 times faster than if there was just one node sending AV. Also note the scaling as you upgrade nodes ...
